A MAN working under his car was crushed when the jack collapsed.
The victim, in his 40s, was rushed to hospital after the freak accident at Willowfield Close, Pye Nest.
It is believed he was suffering from internal bleeding.
His condition in Huddersfield Royal Infirmary was stable last night.
The man was working under his MG when the jack gave way, the car crashing down on him.
Neighbours rushed to his aid, with one man trying to lift the car until emergency services arrived.
One woman said: “I was inside but my partner ran out and tried to lift the car.”
Police, paramedics and firefighters with airbags freed the trapped man, whose name is not yet known.
